»For us, it’s not the strongest that wins, but rather the strongest argument. We encourage our young attorneys to contribute to meetings instead of thinking “The others all have 20 years of experience.  So, I think I’ll just take notes and not say anything for the time being.” For us, being open and showing appreciation means taking all ideas, suggestions and objections seriously.

This is why we listen closely, including to each other. And what is more, we expect those who are more experienced to support and encourage the up-and-coming generation.

We have all benefited from this culture in the course of our careers and have come to appreciate it. Be it at tough hearings, during meetings with our clients or in internal discussions. We have each other’s back.

Our clients notice this – and they appreciate it just as much as we do.«
